Answer Me 1988 follows its predecessors in being a successful story about youth and the trials of growing up.

This time around, the focus is more on families, with the parents stepping in to play a larger role. And it works out great, as the relationships become more meaningful because this isn't just about five families who happen to live on one street, it's more about one large family who happen to live in different houses.

The acting is great, with the ensemble cast melding well. From the veteran parents to the new-actor kids all embrace their roles; willing to do what's necessary to make the characters heartwarming.

The writing, like all the shows in this series, knows how to create a world that's fulfilling, making even small moments seem monumental. The slice-of-life approach gives everyone a chance to grow and the time-jumps shown in an effective way so that it isn't too jarring. It makes you yearn to have lived on this street with everyone.

The only weak point is that each episode's run time is long, so there's the occasional moments where the plot slows down. But because it often picks the pace up again, and because everyone is just so lovable, it's a small point in a large, successful show.

A definite recommend.

Now its ended, the end. It is safe to say that I never have been so emotionally invested in a drama like this before, never. I have been embaressed and hurt along with Duk Seon, Jung Hwan, Dong Ryonh and all the others. I have laughed and felt anxious, well, felt every kind of emotion really.
I never would have thought that Reply 1988 would triumph over 1994 or 1997 but yes it did, by far. This is the first drama I had to rewatch while it was still ongoing just to sooth my abstinence.

And I also got to experience what its like to suffer from secondlead syndrom for the first time, and to the extrem at that. I cryed along with the confession and capitulation.

It has been a journey, a journey I will gladly take again and again.

After reply 1994 I though nothing could exeed the first reply series....but this one sure did!
Every episode was so good and filled with comedy, drama, family, friendship...I cried in almost every episode! And I loved all of them! And of course, because each episode is almost one and a half hour, the character development was really good! In this season it felt more about the family&friends...cause they included the parents as well! None of the previous seasons had a big gang with crazy as shit parents! Hahahahaah!
And I could go on and on...but yes in my opinion, REPLY 1988 is the best season of the reply series! ♡ <3

Nunca vou superar esse drama, me fez chorar e me emocionar como nenhum outro fez. Mal terminei já quero re assistir, os personagens e a história se tornaram inesquecíveis para mim. Best Drama Ever!!

I didn't think it was possible to exceed both reply 1994 and 1997 but 1988 sure did.
Cried like a baby the last episode.
Nothing was boring, well thought out characters and the chemistry between EVERYONE was impeccable.

I will really miss these families.

I just loved it.
I think it was even better than Reply 1994 and Reply 1997...
It was perfect. Not because it is excellent at everything from the beginning till the end, but also for the amazing feelings the last episode gives.
You should watch this, guys. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Masterpiece: 5/5
